Chapter 68. Imitating the heaven
Who commands well, is not forceful.
Who fights well, is not angry.
The best of the winners does not brag war.
Of the masters the best one leads his servants by lowering himself.
This is the virtue of non-arguing. This is the virtue of assurance.
This is imitation of the heaven, which was the highest goal of the old ones.
